Press Releases & Articles

October 2012

On October 1, 2012 the Human Resource Institute of Alberta (HRIA) posted an e-source article that I wrote regarding workplace mental health issues.  The mere notion of approaching a colleague/employee regarding concerns about their mental well-being often results in such a high degree of anxiety that the discussion is completely avoided.  You can read the article at The Mental Health Commission of Canada has recently published its workplace mental health guidelines which emphasizes the importance of public education regarding mental health issues. As a qualified instructor for Mental Health First Aid Canada, I encourage you to utilize the educational options available to you/your company.  Many thanks to the HRIA editorial team for their support in accepting and sharing this article with their members.
